Something I have been putting off for way too long is posting my first YouTube video.
Starting up a YouTube channel has been a dream of mine for a very long time now but I kept putting it off because I was scared to post a video of myself on the internet.
Today I’ve decided to ignore that fear and post my first video!
A huge thank you to my friends Maddy of Those Two Duffers and Julien for doing such a great job of filming and editing this video. Their amazing work almost hides how awkward I am in this video ha ha.
I did really enjoy making it though so there will be more (hopefully less awkward) videos to come, so be sure to visit my YouTube channel and subscribe if you want to see more.
If you have any suggestions for recipes or beauty and health tips you’d like to see a video on let me know and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
So over the past year I’ve been spending a lot of time in the U.S. I managed to avoid most of the unhealthy foods there but there was one popular dish I had to try: the buffalo wings. If you’re not aware, they are chicken wings baked in flour and covered in hot sauce. They were delicious! Continue reading

I love it when you come across a brand that not only sells a product you love but also has a great philosophy behind it. This is why I love Cheeta Recovery, they have great compression wear that don’t cost a bomb (which is a rarity!) and also promote a fun, fit and healthy lifestyle. I wear my tights to Pilates, when I got for a run and sometimes even to work or out to lunch, they’re super comfy!
Michael and Jon started up Cheeta Recovery because they lost count of the amount of times they heard people say they were sick of paying outrageous amounts for their workout gear. “Why should you pay a premium to the big multinationals for something that helps you live a healthy and active lifestyle?” I couldn’t agree with them more!
Given my fascination with people who decide to take the leap and make a career out of their passion I really wanted to know more about these guys. So Michael was kind enough to answer some questions, which I know you’ll all enjoy reading. Continue reading
I love a good book or audio book, especially if it can educate, inspire and make me laugh all at the same time. So I thought I’d share 4 of my favourite books, in case you’re in need of some inspiration or just want something to talk about at your next dinner party. Continue reading
